Rockies Rumors: Redding, Gonzalez, Turnbow, Blanco

8:40pm: Rosenthal says the Rockies and Nats are discussing a Redding for Taveras swap.

4:06pm: Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune says the Rockies have had internal discussions about Henry Blanco.  I imagine they’d have to ship out Yorvit Torrealba first.

3:17pm: Troy Renck learned from team sources that the Rockies will not trade Gonzalez this winter.

1:25pm: MLB.com’s Bill Ladson says the Nats and Rockies met for a half hour yesterday, talking about Redding and Carlos Gonzalez.  At the trade deadline, the Nationals wanted Dexter Fowler for Redding.  Really?

1:57am: Rockies rumors for Tuesday…

  • According to Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post, the Rockies have discussed trading for Nationals starter Tim Redding.  Redding is under team control for two more years.  On one hand the last thing the Nationals can spare is pitching, but on the other Redding is getting pricey and is a back-end guy anyway.
  • Renck contends that the Nationals maintain some interest in Willy TaverasKen Rosenthal wrote recently that the Nats "aren’t terribly enamored" of the speedy outfielder.
  • The Rockies are one of three teams confirmed to be in on Derrick Turnbow, who will work out for teams in January.  The Pirates and Giants have also expressed interest.
  • Sometime in January, the Rockies will look into a long-term extension for starter Ubaldo Jimenez.
